Magic Kids Memphis out NOW (Cassette + Symphony + Dates)

Magic Kids’ pop-odyssey MEMPHIS hits the streets today. We’re celebrating the occasion on a few fronts. For those of you all over the world, we pressed up a very limited edition surprise version of the album on Cassette. It’s limited to 250 copies to be sold at a few future shows, but for the time being, you can purchase the tape (along with CD/LP) until it runs out on the True Panther and Matador stores. Get an instant mp3 download of the record with order as well.

Order CD/LP/Tape/DA HERE

For those of you in Memphis, the band are celebrating the album’s release with a really special one-time performance alongside the Memphis Youth Symphony. Memphis is flipping out about the event, a benefit for MYS and a special way for the band to capture the more baroque elements of the record in a way that’s difficult to on the road.  You can read about it here, here and here. Supposedly the Levitt Shell is where Elvis played some of his first shows. YES!

For those of you in the rest of the country, the band are embarking on basically a 3-month world tour that starts out with a tour of Southern independent record stores, TOMORROW. Can’t stop wont stop.
